The second rig would game much better. No comparison between the 760 to the 770. The 8350 will have no trouble with any games at max settings.

According to what i know the gaming depends mainly on the gpu so i think tiny voices is right , but what about the SSD and the Monitor of the second rig?

The Samsung 840 pro is going to be like 5% faster than the sandisk. NOT noticable in any way at all. Both are good SSDs.

The ASUS monitor is MUCH better because that benQ isn't even 1080p. That would be a waste for a gaming build.

Both builds are great! But I personally would go with the GTX 760 (as you can see in my signature :p ). Why? Because it's just bang for the buck. I mean come on guys - with 760 you can max any game. Maybe you'll just have to lower the filtrations from 8X to 4X or something unnoticeable like that. GTX 760 + i5-3570K/4670K is totally fine & enough for gaming. This is my advice. Save your money. :)

Crysis 3 is an exception. It looks like that the developers of the Crysis 3 have been thinking that everybody has SLI TITAN + 2 x i7 PC. Which is just ridiculous...

Lol, then why you buyed the 760? And by saying "I deserve 770" it looks like that Nvidia should have donated one 770 to you. :D 
September 22, 2013 3:32:15 AM

I havent bought anything yet ... xD I hope nvidia gifted it to me ! :D 
September 22, 2013 3:38:48 AM

Oppss. sorry. Didn't saw the word "considered", lol. :D  Yea, Nvidia should make a donation to all fans. :D

Metro can be a good challenge for the gpu thats why i said those 2 but other then that i really dont see to many challenges for gpus unless the game isnt optimized correctly
